View Full Version : Pilling and Superwash?

Does anybody know if "superwash" merino wool has a tendency to pill like regular merino wool does? I've never knitted with superwash wool, but I'm tempted to try it, especially if it means no pilling! :cheering:

I made a sweater with Debbie Bliss Merino, which is a superwash. I've worn it a few times and haven't noticed any pilling. I will say, though, that it stretched quite a bit when I wet it to block it, so from now on I'll wash my swatches, for sure.

I also made a sweater with a superwash 'regular' wool and haven't noticed much pilling there, either.
